In 2019 my husband was diagnosed with a cavernous malformation near the hippocampus area of his Brain. Due to its location, it has caused him to suffer from seizures, headaches, mood and temperament changes along with memory and concentration issues. In October of 2020 my husband suffered a small stroke. For the first year and a half we were told by other neurosurgeons that removing it was either too risky or impossible and managing his symptoms was our only option. The mood and temperament changes has affected our marriage and his relationships with others including our Children. In March of 2021 a visit to the ER led us to Dr. Rao. Dr. Rao met our circumstance with compassion and concern. He exchanged what was considered too risky and impossible for something doable and possible. On September 13th (My birthday) Dr. Rao successfully removed my husbands Cavernous malformation and gave me the best birthday gift. Hope for a better quality of life for my husband and a chance at restored relationships with loved ones.

Dr. Rao was a true godsend when he came into my hospital room at Mission Hospital on March 21, 2021. I needed emergency surgery, as I had three tumors in my head, and Dr. Rao said he would perform the surgery. He spent a long time with me, explaining everything in simple terms and had a calm demeanor, which was very reassuring. He performed the surgery flawlessly with no brain damage and truly saved my life. I believe it was a miracle to have him as my surgeon and I will forever be grateful.

We just met Dr. Rao and his team a couple of weeks ago and are extremely satisfied. He is very knowledgeable, kind and caring. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone.

I am so blessed that Dr. Rao is my neurosurgeon. He operated on my brain tumor in spring of 2019 and said because of its size the tumor had been growing in my head for at least 20 years. Nothing short of a miracle and I have him to thank for my life. I will always be grateful to Dr. Rao. He is a once in a lifetime, brilliant doctor. Thank you.

Very fortunate that Dr. Rao was available for an unexpected situation involving our young, adult son. If not for his excellent bedside manner, willingness to explain options, and expertise in similar procedures we might have had to deal with long term challenges and difficult decisions if he would have had to work with another provider. We went from hospitalization, to diagnosis, to procedures culminating in a major brain surgery in about 30 days. All of this during a peak period of the pandemic (Halloween through Thanksgiving). He's an excellent surgeon and up to date on latest technology.
